The Firemen's Convention.
The thirty-first annual convention of
tho Nebraska Voluntoor Firemen's
Association, which had bcon in session
threo days in our city, closed last even
ing with a banquot at the Masonic hall.
Tho total number of delegates register
ing was 340, and from several of tho
visitors wo learned that tho convention
as to attendance and the itnportanco of
tho business transacted, was ono of the
boat ever held.
These 340 delegates came from nearly
one hundred towns of tho stato, nnd
wcra a fine body of men representing
all classes of life pursuits them wore
present lawyers, editors, physicians,
merchants, mechanics, clerks and la-,
bsrers; stalwart young men, middlo
aged men, and men whose gray hair
and infirm step betokened years of ser
vice in tho work of fighting tho lira
fiend. Taken as a whole they formed
a representative gathering of ths sturdy
citizenship of Nebraska; the class of
men who have assisted in making Ne
braska a great stato dotted thickly
with progressive cities and towns. Not
only were they sturdy men, but they
were of a generous, jovial disposition;
they wcro men who sea the sunny sido
of life, who enjoy thcmsolves as good
citizens should. To their credit let it
bo said that there was not one instance
wherein they did not confine their ac
tions within the limits of law-abiding
A number of the delegates with
whom The Tribuno man formed ac
quaintance, camo to him and volun
teered the statement that of tho many
conventions held there werenono whero
tho delegates as individuals were better
satisfied. Accomomdations for sleeping
and eating were adequate, tho enter
taining features were generous, every
citizen acted as though he was
really glad to meet tho delagates and
took pleasuro in helping entertain
them. From the many complimentary
remarks heard we believo that North
Platto as tho host city, performed tho
The initial sessesionof the convention
was held nt the Keith theatre and was
presided ovor by James Keefo, of this
city as temporary chairman, to which
position he had been assigned-by Presi-'
dent Boyle. Owing the illness of Mayor
Patterson, City Attorney Halligan made
the address of welcome, to which reply
was made by J. C. Cleland, of Fremont,
An acceptable featuro of tho evening
were selections by the girls' gloo club of
tho high school. A committee on cre
dentials was appointed and then an ad
journment was taken to tho Lloyd opera
house where nn informal reception was
held. Here about 300 delegates and a
number of local firemen exchanged
greeting and wero served with a dutch
lunch. This affair lasted until midnight.
The sessions of tho convention Wed
nesday and yesterday were attended by
practically the full representation of
dolegates, evidence that tho visitors
were nothero merely for a "good timo."
At these sessions there were discussed
many questions portaining to the better
ment of volunteer departments, to tho
need of legislative measures of differ
ent kinds, the occupation tax of insur
ance companies, and many other matterR
of importance to the firo departments
of the stute. Having under their pro
tection millions upon millions of prop
erty, the departments, through tho
state association, behove, and rightfully
so, that they are entitled to tho hearty
co-operation of the general public and
by tho legislative bodies that represent
tho people. Hence tho stato legislature
and councils of the cities should not be
slow to recognize tho reasonable re
quests of the firemen.
Tho election of officers of tho associa
tion for the ensuing year was held yos
terday afternoon, and resulted as

At the banquet last evening nt the
Masonic hall, the menu for which waa
served by tho ladies of the Lutheran
church, plates were laid for 350, which
of course meant crowded" conditions;
not only the dining room "but tho recep
tion room nnd hallway being sot with
tables. Following the excellent moal,
with Judgo Grimes cs toaa:mastcr,
several toasts were proposed and respon
ded to, Colonel Cody making tho princi
pal talk in which he recounted some
tales of the early days, told of the
trans-Miaiouri country and predicted a
brilliant futuro for the city between
the rivers. Ono of the pleasant features
of tho evening waa the prcsantation of
a gold headed cano to Mr. Boyco, tho '
retiring president of tho association.
This gift was by popular subscription
from mombers ottho association, nearly !
every member present donnting his
mite. The Hart orchestra furnished,
music for tho evening.
Big Crowd Attend Exhibition.
The sparring exhibition, (which is a
polite name for a prize fight) at the
Lloyd opera houso last night attracted
a crowd that packed tho big hall and
gallery as tight as sardines; the number
did not fall short of 800, and moro than
fifty per cent of these wore out-of-town
Two preliminaries preccdod tho main
ovont, the first of which was a six round
go between Kid Lnnge of Denver, and
Tojrmy Smith of South Omaha. In tho
third round Smith had Lange groggy,
but tho latter showed wonderful recup
erative power, and in the Inst thrco
rounds showed up strong nnd honors
wero oven. Tho second preliminary
was a three-round go between West
burg and Brown, both of this city, in
which tha latter seemed to havo a shade
tho bettor of tho engagement.
Then camo tho main event, a fifteen
round go between McCarthy of Ravenna
and Hargis of Lexington, but tho latter
was out classed and wont down and out
Jn the fifth round. The first round of
tins fight demonstrated McCarthy's su
periority in science as well as hard hit
ting. He floored his opponent in the
second, third and fourth rounds, Hargis
each tima taking nlmost tho full count
to get on his foet. In the fifth Hargis
came up wobbly and McCarthy had little
trouble in putting him down nnd out.
Tho bigWowd seemed satisfied with
the amusjment thoy received for their
G. W. Whltcomb and family roceived
$300 as part pay and damages from
Montgomery & Ward last week for tho
serious timo they had wherein tho wholo
family waa poisoned by eating pickled
pigs feet ordered from that firm. It
seems the adjuster had made two trips
here and both wero on Sundays, Ho
s.'jcurcd.ift recciptfor the wholo amount,
$500, from the family ns a complete
settlement of the case, upon a promise
that the $200 balance would bo forth
coming immediately upon, his return
to Kansas City. This contract was
signed up on Sunday. Tho $200
draft was to havo been horo yester
day and Mr. Whitcomb is of tho opin
ion that ho has been let down on
tho $200. His original intentions
were to havo sued the firm for $5,000
but members of the family wished for
an immediate settlement and the above
coursa was taken.
Later Mr. Whitcomb informed us
today that he had juBt received a draft
for tho $200. Wo are of tho opiniqn
that a much better settlement could
havo beon made had tho rights not been
signed away bo roadily, ns thoy wero
justly entitled to a larger sum. Hor

an instant the car had caught firo and

alarm was sent in and brought aid and
tho flames wero oxtinguishad but not
before the car was damaged to tho
extent of sevoral hundred dollars. Tho

Irrigation District hore Snturday, tho
proposition to buy a perpetual water

prospect for water for irrigation is
better than usual, and it wns' voted to
